This song should be much higher! - maarilynmaanson
Best song ever!
This, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Stairway To Heaven are the absolute untouchables in rock music in terms of creativity, storytelling, and above all composition. (Blackbird by Alter Bridge is a close-ish fourth is fourth for me :D)
This is a song that you can really sing or dance to. One of Aerosmith's best, without a doubt. Deserves more credit.
For all of you that are Lord of the Rings fans, just listen to this song closely, even look up the lyrics & then when it was written. You will get a kick...
This song is amazing. I love this song too much. - maarilynmaanson
This song knocked the Beatles out of the number one spot and the Beatles are quite possibly the greatest band of all time. Pretty good for a first hit song.
This is definitely top ten worthy. The Doors are the most brilliant band of their time. Them and The Beatles are king. The Beatles pioneered music and then The Doors turned it upside down. Light My Fire was a massive hit and it is an amazing song. Long live Jim Morrison.
I fail to see how Know Your Enemy by Green Day is above this. Green Day isn't classic rock and they're only okay. The doors is classic rock and they're great. I'm not even a huge doors fan but I think this song should be up higher
It couldn't get much higher.V 8 Comments
I know, not classic rock, bla, bla, bla. This song is powerful and influential and top ten worthy.V 1 Comment
Definitely one of the best covers everything recorded.
How is this so low? This song is beautiful. - maarilynmaanson
Made me cry,as I was thinking of a girl
I say... This song is absolutely great! Try to listen to it and find out the greatness of randy bachman!
I love this song. I don't really care for metal.
Even in the 2015s, no band can produce the rhythm of the Black Country as they did.
This song deserves to be much higher. Along with Sympathy for the Devil and Gimme Shelter, this is one of my 3 favorite Rolling Stones songs. - stevekubin
A semi-hidden b side classic
Anyone who doesn't like this song is crazy, This song is Amazing. Thus the title! This is one song by Aerosmith that is definitely underplayed.V 2 Comments
Seriously, why aren't there about 20 or 30 Queen songs on this list? Fat Bottomed Girls, Hammer To Fall, Keep Yourself Alive, Spread Your Wings, 39, Killer Queen, Who Wants To Live Forever, Too Much Love Will Kill You, We Will Rock You, Somebody To Love, Tie Your Mother Down, A Kind Of Magic, Innuendo, One Vision...I could go on.
Amazing song, seem that Freddie enjoy while singing this song
159th?! come on, it's the best Queen song, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is overrated as hell...
Okay, defining Classic Rock as 60's, 70's and early 80's (before synthesizers became popular) rock, blues rock, psychedelic rock and hard rock (exluding metal and punk movements, because they are a bit separate from the classic genres), this is my top:
1. "Don't Stop Me Now" - Queen
2. "You Shook Me All Night Long" - AC/DC
3. "Paint It Black" - The Rolling Stones
4. "My Generation" - The Who
5. "Break on Through (to the Other Side)" - The Doors
6. "La Grange" - ZZ Top
7. "Highway to Hell" - AC/DC
8. "House of the Rising Sun" - The Animals
9. "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" - Pink Floyd
10. "Riders on the Storm" - The Doors
11. "Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zeppelin
12. "Sweet Home Alabama" - Lynyrd Skynyrd
13. "Behind Blue Eyes" - The Who
14. "Dream On" - Aerosmith
15. "Layla" - Derek and the Dominos
16. "Get Off of My Cloud" - The Doors
